Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Each child grows and develops at his or her own pace, emotionally, socially, intellectually, and physically. At. St. Aidan's Episcopal Day School, we recognize that these elements are interdependent, that our program must reflect this, and that we must respect the integrity of each child.

We strive to promote a loving, caring atmosphere rich in experience, materials, and equipment to nurture the total development of your child.

Our goals are to give your child a healthy sense of self, helping each to develop social, physical, and educational skills. In an environment of understanding, respect, acceptance, and assistance, we encourage interaction, individuality, creative expression, and, most importantly, nurture feelings of self-confidence.
